Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Monitor black screen with blinking amber/green light

\015 My Planar PL1910M monitor will not display an image. The power indicator light on the front panel alternates between amber and green. I understand this is a common problem with this model. Is this just bad capacitors on the power inverter board?\015

Answers :

You need to reset the display. The display is in a safe mode. Resetting the display is a simple procedure and Planar has the instructions on their website in their online customer support section.
Most likely this is thie issue.
